Wsbg. library supporters plead for reprieve Closure plan contested

Lois Ann Baker Record Staff CHESTERVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Concern over the fate of the Williamsburg library branch filled the Chesterville branch to capacity and then some last Thurs., March 21, as the SD&G County Library board held its monthly meeting here. The crowd, including children with protest placards, turned out for a presentation by Lisa Vreman, earlier granted permission to address the board over the planned closure of the Williamsburg library. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a surprise for any of you that I am one of the Williamsburg residents who are upset at the announcement in December that you would like to close Continued on page 6

Hudak on pre-election hustings Touts Tory ag paper, serves up red meat in Bonville Lois Ann Baker Record Staff BONVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; In a visit reminiscent of a campaign tour stop, PC party leader Tim Hudak held a brief press conference before heading off to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;have breakfast with the local party faithfulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at the

Cornwall Township Lionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Club in Bonville. Joined by local MPP Jim McDonell and GlengarryPrescott-Russellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s PC candidate Roxanne Villeneuve Robertson, Hudak introduced his latest white paper entitled Paths to Prosperity: Respect for

Rural Ontario at the organic beef farm of Charles and Marika Stenger. Hudak called the Stengers the â&#x20AC;&#x153;kind of people we want to fight for to give more opportunities to get outstanding Ontario products on the shelves here in our province and world

wide.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Agriculture and agribusiness combined rival auto and auto parts for their impact on the Ontario economy,â&#x20AC;? said Hudak, â&#x20AC;&#x153;And we have the opportunity, the chance to be the breadbasket to the world.â&#x20AC;?

Hudak said Ontario was at a crossroads â&#x20AC;&#x153;and we could open our doors to more investment and job creation in agriculture or keep them closed like the current government is doing and let those opportunities pass us by.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We stand for our farmers in rural Ontario in creating more jobs in agriculture and agribusiness,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Wednesday, March 27, 2013 questioned things that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make sense, like having the OSPCA involved in farming operations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People from the OSPCA who had never been on a farm before seizing their herds, and there are horror stories out there,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need change.â&#x20AC;? McDonell said what was needed was someone with expertise like a veterinarian to put rules in place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These people (the OSPCA) are great with dogs and cats but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not in an apartment in the city and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not sleeping on blankets,â&#x20AC;? said McDonell, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need people that know the industry to make decisions.â&#x20AC;? Hudak also said he

wanted to make sure rural Ontario got its fair share of the gas tax. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now, the Liberals urban-focused government will only give you gas tax if you have a subway or bus system, but in many parts of Ontario the roads and bridges are public transit. And as far as I know, people in Bonville pay the same gas taxes as people in Brampton,â&#x20AC;? said Hudak, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would ensure that you could invest in roads and bridges so you could attract more jobs that way.â&#x20AC;? While in the area, Hudak also met with medical doctors and small business owners to hear their concerns about the future of Ontario.

Tim Hudak was in Bonville on Sat., March 23, to speak about his recent white paper Path to Prosperity: Respect for Rural Ontario. Prior to a breakfast at the Lionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Club in Bonville, Hudak spoke to the media at the Stenger Farm.

Hudak

Continued from the front Hudak said the white paper recently released reflects the fact that a very urban-focused Liberal government views farming as an antique from the 20th century and late 19th century. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know what farming is. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s innovative, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highly productive and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an opportunity for our province, not something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a creature of the past,â&#x20AC;? said Hudak. After speaking with farmers, Hudak said there were two major issues they had, and both are included in the white paper. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The number one thing we hear from farmers to help them go out and create jobs is reducing this redtape thicket that slows them down when they want to get something done,â&#x20AC;? said Hudak, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are going to lower that red-tape to help make cost of production go down so farmers can compete on the

Hudak said he wanted to reduce the number of rules by 33 per cent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If my cabinet doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do that, I dock their pay and I dock my pay as premier as well,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Make politicians put their money where their mouths are.â&#x20AC;? The other issue is that the PCs would be looking at a one window access concept. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is nothing more frustrating for farmers when they are asked to referee a dispute between the Ministry of Agriculture, MNR, Conservation authorities and the Ministry of the Environment, and they spend their whole time at their desk when they want to be out in their barns,â&#x20AC;? said Hudak. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have an agriculture industry in this province that is the envy of the world,â&#x20AC;? added McDonell, â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arguably our biggest industry. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost totally ignored. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worse than ignored, there are more regulations that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use the science. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s use the science to enhance our

job of feeding the world.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can make a difference,â&#x20AC;? McDonell added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;And we will be there to be the government that will make a difference.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need a strong rural voice back at Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Park,â&#x20AC;? said Villeneuve Robertson, â&#x20AC;&#x153;And not a parttime Minister of Agriculture like we have with the Liberal government.â&#x20AC;? Hudak said should an election be called, his first priority would be for job creation and the economy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Concerns about getting a job, or climbing the ladder to get a better job are top issues,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For Ontario to be successful...we need to make sure we are firing on all cylinders, in rural Ontario and in urban Ontario,â&#x20AC;? Hudak added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Agriculture has tremendous potential if we just change the attitude and give respect to rural Ontario and recognize agriculture as the job creating engine we know it to be.â&#x20AC;?

Hunter has now turned his attention to planning the second annual Mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Breakfast this spring. The new tradition sees Mayor Eric Duncan deliver a speech on the state of the township in front of a business audience, with other special guest speakers also invited to attend. In addition to his job with the township, Hunter serves as a volunteer board member of the Ontario East Economic Development Commission, elected to that two-year position in January.

Registration for this event can be made via the website or by contacting the school for a registration form. Duncan said registration is a little slow right now, but expects it to

There is currently a promotion going on right now to encourage early registration. Alumni registering before April 15 will be entered into a draw to receive their registration paid in full. Duncan added that there are different registration packages available. For example, you can register just for the dance Saturday night where Duncan said they were expecting the biggest crowd. Whichever event you are interested in, make sure you register early to get in on the draw.

Page 4 The Chesterville Record

Beware the turds of March It’s that time of year again when the pedestrians of Chesterville must again ponder — and curse — the canine excrement underfoot. With the painfully slow melting of the accumulated snow pack here (What is it with Eastern Ontario hanging on to this white wintry evidence so much longer than Toronto and Hamilton?) dog owners’ sins of the season just past have become all too evident. One shouldn’t have to play unsanitary hopscotch when trekking over the salt-encrusted sidewalks and streets of the village. But too often that is the case at this time of year. While the potential health consequences of such fecal matter lying around shouldn’t be over exaggerated, this wayward excrement may contain pathogens or parasites that could potentially make other dogs very sick if ingested by them, to say nothing of the potential risks to small children and other people. Not that anyone needs to be convinced to avoid tracking the stuff into their home or workplace, if only for the ick factor alone. The ignorant actions of a minority are compelling all of us to keep our eyes at our feet when out and about in Chesterville. It bears noting, of course, that not every dog owner is so irresponsible; but a few bad apples unfortunately taint every barrel. As such, a modern municipality does require a dog control and poop-and-scoop bylaw on its books, as is the case in North Dundas. And while it may seem nonsensical in those very rural areas of the township where pet dogs may never have the chance to squat on a sidewalk or a public park in their lives, the concept of tracking the canine population with a registration and tag system ultimately makes eminent sense – if only to slightly reduce the chance of somebody stepping into a steaming pile in one of the villages of North Dundas. Currently, poop-and-scoop rules are very hard to enforce – short of a ticket-toting bylaw enforcement officer catching the offender in the act. But this writer can see a not-too-distant future in which some already available technologies are grafted onto the existing dog-tag system. For example, marathon runners wear a special chip in their shoe that allows them to be automatically identified by race organizers, at some distance, whenever they cross the finish line. Perhaps there should be a similar remote ID chip in every dog tag. The township could then issue a special app to anyone with a smart phone, allowing the average citizen to remotely view the identification number of any nearby dog in a park or other public place. If dog owners knew that anyone could effectively and discretely complain to the township about the actions of their specifically identified animal, to at least generate a warning letter back to them, they might be just a little more inclined to abide by the rules. And as the recent dog leash case here in Chesterville has shown, the identity of a canine is a critical piece of information for the township to possess, should it wish to attempt a court prosecution under the Dog Control Bylaw. As technology continues to advance into the future, one could imagine ubiquitous and cheap DNA testing being incorporated into the system someday as well. The township would keep a DNA profile of each registered dog, then use a handheld device in the field to identify with absolute certainty the source of misplaced feces – and fine the owner of the dog involved. But for now, we’re stuck with stepping gingerly through Chesterville. Nelson Zandbergen

The Road Home

An area rich in history Carolyn Thompson Goddard Record Contributor Those long Sunday afternoon drives that were such an integral part of my childhood were designed to help Dad rest after a long week at work. While the destinations were usually to visit nearby relatives, occasionally Mom would decide that a “local history” tour was needed so that her children would be well versed in the rich heritage of our area. North, south, east or west, it didn’t matter what direction Dad chose, Mom would be able to find points of historical importance located along the highways and byways of Eastern Ontario. Our “historical tours” would occasionally take us down Highway 31 (now County Road 31) towards Morrisburg. We might make a right hand turn at Williamsburg and travel down to the Smyth Orchard near Dundela. Once we had purchased and were happily crunching on apples there was the obligatory stop at the historical plaque in Dundela to hear the story of the discovery of the McIntosh Apple. If it was early enough in the afternoon we might travel cross country to Iroquois in the hope of seeing a ship go through the

1983 Over $14,500 in donations have been raised as of Tuesday to send the daughter of a former Chesterville resident to California for a life-saving heart and double lung transplant. Rosemary Sonennberg, daughter of Chesterville native Dick Merkley, is scheduled to leave Toronto for Palo Alto, California, by air ambulance Tuesday morning but her condition had deteriorated over the weekend to the point that Monday afternoon the doctors declared her unfit for the arduous journey and are now waiting for her condition to stabilize before attempting the flight.

locks there. After a quick run around the park, an ice cream cone from the souvenir shop and a visit to the washroom, we would be off to Prescott for an early dinner before returning home. Along the heritage highway, just before Prescott, we would pass the historic plaque detailing the history surrounding the Battle of the Windmill which occurred in 1838. Mom would pull out her booklet on this event (interesting that it just happened to be in her purse) and begin to tell us the story of this other November American invasion of our country. It seems that a group of Americans (the Patriot Hunters) felt that British North Americans were in need of liberation from the yoke of British government. There were a number of incursions with the local one being held on November 12, 1838. Mom’s booklet on the Battle of the Windmill described in great detail this ill-fated invasion by the American Patriot Hunters and the subsequent events that occurred. It was interesting to hear her talk about the leader von Schoultz, the American invaders, the American sympathizers living in Upper Canada (one of whom was a brother to a maternal great-great grandfather), the

Dundas militia marching up to defend their country and the American defeat. We learned how von Schoultz was captured, then imprisoned at Fort Henry in Kingston and later put on trial, with his defence lawyer being a young Kingston man named John A. Macdonald. Years later Macdonald would become an integral part of the pro-Confederation forces, our first prime minister and some historians feel that his desire for a strong central government stems from things he learned while serving as counsel to von Schoultz. Sir John A. Macdonald, Prime Minister, Father of Confederation, MP for Kingston and the Islands, and family man lived a long, interesting and colourful life. I have always wondered about the validity of the numerous stories that have circulated about this most important Canadian. When the Chesterville & District Historical Society has Sir John A. and Lady Macdonald as guests at the Old Town Hall in Winchester on April 12, my curiosity about him might just be satisfied at last. It is sure to be a grand evening as we will be treated to his oratorical prowess and have the chance to ask him “is that really water in your glass?”

Mrs. Sonnenberg suffers from idiopathic pulmonary hypertension, a rare condition that can only be corrected through the double transplant.

between pupils and teachers was at a very high level and in his opinion, that was one of the first objects of successful teaching.

1953 Regional Inspector Zeigler, of Ottawa, inspected the two high schools in North Dundas High School District last week. He was very pleased with the general work of the units and reported fully to members of the board at a special meeting in Winchester on Tuesday night. Mr. Zeigler assured the board they had a staff of teachers to be proud of. The harmony and close relationship

OSAID week at NDDHS This week is a week looked forward to by many students each year. This week was OSAID week at North Dundas. OSAID week started on Monday, March 25th with ‘pie face day’. On Monday students were able to throw a pie at the faces of their five student OSAID leaders and their principle Mrs. Banks. On Tuesday,

1933 For a number of years the Ridge Road, six miles from Chesterville to the junction with Highway 31 south of Winchester, has received the execrations of almost every one who has been forced to use it. This year the denunciation of the policy that has left this road in such a state as it is at present seem more insistant than ever. Several farmers have come to this office inquiring whether anything can be done.

March 26th it was a day to remember what ODAID stands for and the unfortunate events that lead OSAID to be formed. Tuesday was ‘white face day’. OSAID students had their faces painted white and did not talk through the whole day. On their backs they wore the stories of people who had lost their lives due to drinking and driving. Today, (Wednesday, March 27th) was a simple day for students through the school to support OSAID with their fight against drinking and driving by wearing red on ‘wear red day’ Lastly, to top off the week on Thursday, March 28th OSAID students are making and selling mocktails at lunch for $1. They will have drinks like strawberry daiquiris and piña coladas without the alcohol. Along with the busy activities this week that students took part in there is also a glow dance tomorrow (Thursday, March 28th). The theme of the dance is glow. Tickets for the glow dance are being sold this week at lunch or it is $10 at the door. It was a great, action packed week at North Dundas and a good boost in school spirit.

Detachment Commander position open Nelson Zandbergen Record Staff LONG SAULT â&#x20AC;&#x201D; After almost three years as detachment commander of the SD&G OPP, Inspector Mike McDonell is being transferred out of the position for some serious fun and games in the Niagara and Golden Horseshoe Region â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the 2015 Pan Am and Para Pan Am games, for which heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been tapped to head the security planning for the Ontario Provincial Police. McDonell, whose mother hails from Chesterville, was just

typing up the farewell memo to his SD&G colleagues when contacted by The Record on Monday, March 25. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been three weeks today that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve actually been doing both jobs,â&#x20AC;? said McDonell, who revealed that his title as detachment commander will officially conclude April 15. When asked if he viewed the transfer to the important project in Southern Ontario as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;bittersweet moment,â&#x20AC;? McDonell exclaimed, â&#x20AC;&#x153;In fact, I was just writing our people to say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It truly is a bittersweet and difficult time

for me to write you this noteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.â&#x20AC;? Of his role in SD&G, the Alexandria resident remarked, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the best job Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever had, so it is difficult leaving.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Too good to be true,â&#x20AC;? he also said of the job heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vacating. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got an extremely effective and an extremely tight team. It truly is a celebration of policing to be working in SD&G,â&#x20AC;? he added, describing the squadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s morale as among the highest in the province. He will serve as â&#x20AC;&#x153;lead plannerâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; of security at the

coming games, heading up a contingent of 120 staff from a number of police forces. Originally coming to the SD&G OPP from the RCMP, McDonell has previous experience in the upper echelons of arranging security for G8 and G20 summits, and the 2002 Popeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visit, as the RCMP officer then responsible for Ontario. The OPP has already advertised the detachment commanderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position as open and McDonell expects the job to be filled sometime later this spring, following board interviews.

Library Continued from the front the library branch in Williamsburg,â&#x20AC;? she began by saying. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lived in Williamsburg for over 13 years and have been a patron of that library branch for the same.â&#x20AC;? Vreman went on to say that she was confused by the decision because statistics showed that although the branch is only open for 15 hours each week, more material is signed out per hour most months at Williamsburg than at Winchester or Morrisburg, despite both of those branches being in bigger towns with longer hours. Vreman also mentioned the Public Libraries Act, Section 21, which states that a library board must operate a branch library in each municipality that operated a public library before that municipality became part of the county library system, unless both the library system and township council agree otherwise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From their replies to our letters and calls, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sound like you have the agreement of township council on this,â&#x20AC;? she said. Vreman said the library is much more than just a place to read and many patrons of the Williamsburg branch stop in to pick up books, browse the shelves, talk about the latest local news and use the internet, some often spending a half hour or more at the branch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of my neighbours, who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t drive, confided in me this week that she has been taking online courses

and can no longer afford her internet at home,â&#x20AC;? said Vreman, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you remove the internet service from our town, she may not graduate.â&#x20AC;? She also added that many reference books canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be removed from the library and it was a long trip to Morrisburg to read up on local history. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the more frustrating things about this announcement is that there was no discussion or consultation with the Williamsburg community about this closure,â&#x20AC;? said Vreman, who also noted a petition by Williamsburg residents requesting a meeting with township council and the library board had drawn over 200 adult and 51 childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signatures. In closing, Vreman said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would ask that you reconsider closing the Williamsburg library, at least until such time as the township of South Dundas requests that the library vacate the township building and it can be relocated.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can assure you that there is nobody at this table that wants to do a disservice to the public,â&#x20AC;? said Board Chair Bill McGimpsey, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about survival. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not like we are not looking for other opportunities to serve the public of Williamsburg, but we are really looking at doing this right.â&#x20AC;? McGimpsey said the board intended to have a PowerPoint presentation for the residents of Williamsburg outlining their decision in late April or early May. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will really be able to answer your questions and have a good Q and A between you and

Wednesday, March 27, 2013 ourselves,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are not hiding anything, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a discussion on the table for over six months,â&#x20AC;? said McGimpsey. He added that very seldom did anyone other than board members show up at meetings and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve obviously proven that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s different tonight, that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to you, but we do want to answer more of your questions. We are looking at alternatives. We are working on a behind the scenes strategy.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We should tell then that we have not voted on that yet. The library board has not voted on closing that library yet,â&#x20AC;? said Board member Chris McDonell, however it was pointed out that a resolution to do just that had already been voted on and passed on Dec 22. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not in favour of closing the library,â&#x20AC;? said McDonell, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Library Board is to make libraries not to close them.â&#x20AC;? This comment received energetic applause from the audience. There was some discussion over whether the building currently housing the library was sold, but as no representative from South Dundas attended the meeting, the question remained unanswered. McGimpsey was asked if the branch could stay open until the building was sold, if that was what the township of South Dundas decided to do. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask council to maintain a building for us,â&#x20AC;? said McGimpsey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m saying until council has asked you to leave the building. Can you not stay there?â&#x20AC;? said Mary Strader, a Williamsburg library patron. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our plan is to move in

whenever the building is ready,â&#x20AC;? he said, referring to the Morrisburg High School conversion. It was noted by another library patron that even if the building is sold, the building still needed to be maintained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our plan is to consolidate the branches,â&#x20AC;? McGimpsey reiterated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a fancy word for closing Williamsburg,â&#x20AC;? said another library patron. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have a meeting in April for that exact point,â&#x20AC;? said Board member Eric Duncan, pointing out that the board allowed the delegation, but this meeting was not the venue for further discussion on the issue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We promised we would have a meeting, and we will,â&#x20AC;? said McGimpsey, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will be open forum and at that time you can ask questions and we will be prepared.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we just want a reason (for the closure),â&#x20AC;? said Strader.

Fraser report ranks high schools TORONTO - Local area high schools recently received their report card from the Fraser Institute, and it looks as though they have been losing points. The highest school on the list for the Upper Canada District School Board is Tagwi Secondary School in Avonmore which is ranked 480 out of a total of 725 schools tested. Their rating dropped from 5.9 to 5.5. Seaway District High School in Iroquois wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

too far behind, ranking in 539th place with a rating of 5.1, down significantly from the last rating of 6.5. North Dundas District High School ranked at 551 and their rating dropped as well from 5.4 to 5.0. Russell, Russell High School ranked 597 and their rating also dropped a great deal from 6.0 to 4.5. St. Thomas Aquinas in Russell ranked a very respectable 346 out of 725, but their rating dropped

slightly from 6.6 to 6.3. The Fraser Institute ranks Ontario schools in an effort to help parents see how schools in their area are doing academically. The report card uses Grade 9 and 10 EQAO test results to calculate the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overall rating out of 10.

Mayors on Wheels North Dundas Deputy Mayor Gerry Boyce helped to raise awareness about the Meals on Wheels program by delivering meals to the community, and here specifically to Eldon Turner, on Wed., March 20. The Meals on Wheels program run by Carefor Nor-Dun Centre provides a nutritious meal to those at home who are unable to purchase or prepare their own meals. Last year the Carefor Nor-Dun Centre delivered 11,267 meals to over 120 clients in North Dundas. Team leader, C. Rooney, says the program is especially important to seniors who are at risk of nutritional deficiencies if they live alone, are house bound, have limited income, are not eating from the five primary food groups, or arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to make their own meals. According to Statistics Canada, 25 per cent of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population will be over the age of 65 by 2041. The councillors have taken part in a province-wide initiative to raise awareness about the importance of support for programs such as Meals on Wheels.

MacDonald said she is ready to delevop policies to support and enhance municipalitiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ability to conduct their mandates and will look to put the public interest in the forefront of provincial policy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to be a part of the team that brings

stability, sustainability and long-term planning to provincial policy,â&#x20AC;? said MacDonald in the release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The next election may see a majority or a minority government; no matter. I will work with other parties to advance the well being of people across the province,â&#x20AC;? she said adding that her first responsibility would be to the people of SD&SG.â&#x20AC;?We need good-paying jobs, youth employment, access to higher education, healthcare we can count on, greater affordability for everyday people and a fairer tax system, one that will pay for essential services and help the province balance its books.â&#x20AC;? The nomination meeting will be held at the Navy Veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Club on Sixth Street in Cornwall at 7:30 p.m.

Final Claims for Emergency Preparedness Funding submitted The final claims for emergency preparedness funding under the Federal Governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Joint Emergency Preparedness Program (JEPP) are being submitted by the Townships of North Dundas, South Dundas and South Stormont. The Joint Emergency Preparedness Program was established in October 1980 as a Federal program to assist communities to prepare for responses to all types of emergencies. It encouraged the development of emergency response plans and exercises to test the plans. The program supported the purchase of specialized equipment such as radios, generators, and rescue vehicles. Generally, the Federal share of the expense was 45 percent. The Federal agency responsible for JEPP funding is Public Safety Canada. In Ontario, the program is administered by Emergency Management Ontario. One of the first priorities of the three townships on amalgamation was applying for JEPP funding to prepare emergency response plans and conduct emergency exercises. Since then, each of the townships have benefited from JEPP funding. There have been a variety of emergency response items supported in the three townships by the

Joint Emergency Preparedness Program. In 1980, emergency preparedness programs within Ontario communities were not mandatory. It is only since 2004 that Ontario has had regulations for emergency preparedness. Prior to 2004, the Joint Emergency Preparedness Program served as an incentive to Ontario communities to develop emergency management programs to safeguard their citizens in times of an emergency. Thanks to JEPP funding, the three townships - North Dundas, South Dundas, South Stormont â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and many other Canadian communities have been financially assisted in their preparations to become resilient disaster communities.

The Chesterville Record Page 13

Chesterville Lions Club Car Rally, March 30, noon, Chesterville Legion

NHL coach Claude Julien visits area Darren Matte Record Sports EMBRUN— It is not often that you see a current NHL coach in one of the local communities, let alone during the NHL season. Yet that was exactly what fans of the Embrun Panthers and Cumberland Bandits got as Claude Julien, coach of the Boston Bruins, was at the arena in Embrun to take in the National Capital Junior Hockey League playoff game. As per the new NHL collective bargaining agreement, signed in January, teams are required to have a minimum of four days off each month. It just so happened that one of the Boston Bruins’ days off were scheduled on March 20, a day before they were in Ottawa to take on the Senators. That gave Julien the opportunity to see his brother, Richard, who is head coach/general manager of the Bandits. “We got to meet him a few times during the lockout,” said Bandits assistant coach Dale Murdoch. “It is one thing to meet a former NHL coach, but to meet one at his pinnacle is another.” “I came out to see the team a few times during the lockout,” said Julien. “I think the talent out there is very interesting the intensity level is

certainly up for the playoff game from the league games earlier this season.” Richard Julien, and his staff, recently won the league’s award for Coaching Staff of the Year, which was pleasant news broken to Julien, who was the 2008-09 winner of the Jack Adams Award for NHL Coach of the Year. “Really? I didn’t know that he won. It is very nice to see, he really enjoys coaching. He coached minor hockey for a while and I am glad to see him get a chance now at the junior level. Junior hockey is very different today for most kids and you really have to be able to balance hockey with studies and such. He does a good job with that and lets them have fun and play the game.” Julien himself is no stranger to the local junior hockey scene. Before his time in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, Julien spent time coaching the Ottawa Junior Senators Junior A franchise. “I began my coaching career with the Junior Sens in 1994. Coaching that age level is very fun because all of the players are trying to make it as high as possible. It is very different for me now because coaching is just part of a lifestyle, but I definitely enjoyed my time. “

Warriors win silver at Upper Canada Basketball tourney AVONMORE— Intermediate boys basketball teams from Tagwi, Russell High and North Grenville were in Avonmore at Tagwi on March 20 to compete in an Upper Canada School Board Sports Council regional basketball tournament. After beating Russell 34-15, in the round robin, the Warriors made it to the finals against North Grenville. The Warriors team consisting of Hunter Legue, Tristan Jackson, Austin Gibbons, Lukas Willems, Bailey Norman, Ryan Picard, Kalin Gates, Trevor Nyenkamp, Jordan Canham, and Mathew Mainville played well for the little amount of time they were able to practice. The scoring was pretty balanced between the 10 players, but they unfortunately came up just short, losing the finals 34-10 as North Grenville captured the title.

So close!

The Dundas County Lions Bantam House team came within two points of qualifying for Championship Day, March 24 in Kemptville. The Lions needed a win against Russell on March 17, but came up just short with a 2-0 loss. It was their only loss of the playoff round as they went 2-1-1.

Julien went on to coach in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League with the Hull Oylmpiques. In 1997, he won the Memorial Cup as coach of the team. In 2003 Julien was named head coach of the Montreal Canadiens where he remained until 2006. After one season, 2006-07, with the New Jersey Devils, Julien was fired by the team, but was quickly snatched up by the Boston Bruins. He was hired in June of 2007 as the 28th head coach of the team. In his five seasons as the Bruins bench boss, Julien has captured three division titles, made the playoffs all five times and won the 2010-11 Stanley Cup. This season has been an adjustment for Julien as he has tried to get things back in order after the lockout. “The season has been pretty good so far. It has been very hectic with the up and down schedule. I think the toughest part has been building consistency but I think we have done a good job at it.” Julien and the Bruins are currently tied with the Montreal Canadiens for the second in the Eastern Conference, and first in the Northeast Division, with 45 points. The Bruins do have

two games in hand on the top team in the conference, the Pittsburgh Penguins. “Our division has been pretty good this year with Montreal out in front, Toronto

improving and Ottawa showing off their depth. The only team that is not there is Buffalo and I have no idea why because they seem to play us well. I wouldn’t be surprised to see four teams from the Northeast make the playoffs.”

The Bruins have 17 games remaining on the schedule, but for Julien this night was not about his team or their season, it was about showing support for his family and greeting hockey fans who just happen to be taking in the NCJHL action.

Scotiabank, Alexandria gave the Eastern Regional 55+ Games, being organized by the local Ontario Senior Games Association, a financial boost when it matched the  amount raised by the association at a recent fundraising dinner. Scotiabank presented a cheque for $1360 to Senior Games Association President, Graham Vickers, far left, and Eastern Regional Games Chair, George Baker, third from left. Making the presentation on behalf of the bank were, from left, Audrey Kennedy, Colleen Koronewski,  Adam Giroux, and Brenda MacMaster. The Eastern Regional 55+ Games will take place in Cornwall and area on August 20. Between 500 and 600 participants from seven  Eastern Ontario districts will compete in 12 different events.

Bantam Lions finish playoffs 2-1-1 MORRISBURG— The Dundas Bantam House Lions girls hockey team had another great year. Balanced scoring, steady defense and outstanding goaltending, from firstyear net minder Taylor Vanallen, led to a 10 win, eight loss and two tie regular season. Eleven very dedicated girls came to play all year and

were seldom outmatched. They dominated teams with great passing and strong skating. The Lions had excellent tournament results reaching the semi-finals in a 16-team Kingston tournament and winning silver in a Brockville tournament, after a 3-1 finals loss to Gananoque, a team that was unbeaten, heading into the game.

In the playoffs, the Lions defended their 2011-12 championship very well coming one win short of qualifying for Championship Day. The team began their playoffs with a 2-1 win over Outaouais on Feb. 24, in Morrisburg, then beat Kemptville 6-0 on March 2, in Kemptville, they then drew Clarence-Rockland 1-1, in Morrisburg on March

3. That set up a win and they’re in scenario on March 17 in Russell; unfortunately they lost this one 2-0, which placed them fourth (2-1-1) after the playoff round, just two points shy of second place. Carleton Place went on to win the league title on March 24 at Championship Day in Kemptville.

Eagles/Bandits meet in NCJHL finals ST- ISIDORE— The finals are set in the National Capital Junior Hockey League as it will be the top two teams from the regular season squaring off. The St. Isidore Eagles were last year’s runners up, but had a tremendous regular season as they earned the top record overall and in the South Division of 30-2-2 for 62 points. Their opponents will be the Cumberland Bandits. Cumberland was second overall and the top team in the North Division with a record of 24-6-4 for 52 points. Playoffs St. Isidore entered the finals series still perfect in the post season. They began their quest at unfinished business with a four-game sweep of cellar dwellers Vankleek Hill. St. Isidore outscored Vankleek Hill 21-7 in four games. St. Isidore continued to dominate in the second round as they swept Rockland, outscoring them 25-11.

As for the Bandits, their road was not as easy. In their opening round series against the North Dundas Rockets, they dropped the first game before wining the next four for a 4-1 series win. Their second round series went the full seven games with the Embrun Panthers. Cumberland was down at one point 3-1, but won game five, six and seven to complete the comeback and earn a spot in the finals. By eliminating the Panthers, the four-time defending champions, it is guaranteed that the league will crown a new champion for the first time since 2008 when the East Ottawa Thunder, now La Peche Predators, won the title. The match up The championship should be an intriguing one as it showcases the top offensive team, St. Isidore (194 goals for during the regular season), against the best defensive, Cumberland (101 goals

against during the regular season). The two teams split the season series with two wins each. Interestingly, the home teams won all of the meetings this season. The difference in the series might come down to fatigue. St. Isidore had a nine-day layoff between the win over Rockland and game one on March 24. As for Cumberland, after their seven game series, they opened the next day against St. Isidore. Game two went the following night March 25, in Cumberland, making it three games in three days for the Bandits. Results Game one on March 24 continued the pattern of the regular season meetings with St. Isidore winning 3-0 on home ice. Game two went the following night in Cumberland, March 25 with the Bandits winning 5-3.

There will be a new Jr. C Champion

The Cumberland Bandits celebrate a goal in game six of their semi-final NCJHL series against the Embrun Panthers. After falling behind 3-1, the Bandits came all the way back and won the series in seven, ending the Panthers drive for five straight titles. Cumberland meets St. Isidore who made quick work of Rockland in their semi-final with a sweep. The two teams split the opening games March 24 and 25. Matte photo

Vikes on verge of elimination CASSELMAN— After winning their second consecutive St. Lawrence Division title, the Casselman Vikings now find themselves one game away from elimination in the Rideau-St. Lawrence Conference championship against the Athens Aeros. Casselman is making their second-straight appearance in the conference finals, while Athens is looking to avoid being the EOJHL’s equivalent of the Buffalo Bills as they search for their first victory, in the series, in four-straight attempts. Casselman took the opening game of the series on March 17 in Casselman 5-3. Taylor Widenmaier continued his dominant play with a hat trick in the win. Casselman

led 5-1 before Athens scored a pair in the third to make it close. After game one, it has been all Aeros. They took game two on March 19 in front of their home crowd. The teams traded goals all game and needed overtime to produce a winner. Midway through the overtime period Michael Byrne scored to give Athens the 6-5 win and tie in the series. Game three, March 21 in Casselman also needed overtime to decide a winner. With Athens up 3-2 heading to the third, the teams combined for seven goals and Casselman’s Adam Wensink scored with three seconds to go, forcing it into extra time. However, with less than a minute to play

in the overtime period, J.P. Augustine scored for Athens giving them the 7-6 win and 2-1 series lead. Things continued to go Athens way in game four, March 24 in Athens. Athens took a one-goal lead to the third and then made it a twogoal game with 10:02 to play. Simon Cousineau got the Vikings to within one, but they couldn’t get any closer as they took the loss 5-4. Athens now holds a commanding 3-1 series lead and could have wrapped things up last night in Casselman. The Vikings battled back twice in their St. Lawrence Division series with Akwesasne, but check next week’s Record to see if they were able to stay alive against the Aeros.

Vikings down 3-1 to Aeros

Casselman’s Sam McLaughlin is in alone with Athens goalie Erik Miksik but can’t find a way to beat him in Game three on March 21 in Casselman. Athens went on to win this game along with game four and now holds a 3-1 series lead. Matte photo

Sullivan, Team Ontario take silver at Senior Curling Nationals SUMMERSIDE, P.E.I.â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Team Ontario may not have won the gold, but they will not be coming home empty handed. After finishing fourth in the round robin draw with a record of 8-3, the rink out of the Rideau Curling Club, skipped by Howard Rajala and featuring Russellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ken Sullivan, won their tie breaker on March 23 against the host P.E.I. team, skipped by Rod MacDonald. Ontario took a 60 lead in the first four ends and never looked back winning 10-1 after six ends. The win in the tie breaker sent Ontario to the semi final where they met up with Wade Whiteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Alberta rink. The teams traded two points in each of the first four ends before Ontario stole two in the sixth. Ontario went on to score four in the eighth and won 115. That set up a rematch with Wayne Tallon and New Brunswick. During the round robin draw, Ontario was the

only team to hand New Brunswick a loss, 6-3, on March 19. However, New Brunswick would get their revenge when it mattered picking up the 11-3 win for the championship. New Brunswick scored two in the second followed by a steal of one in the third and a steal of three in the fourth to have a commanding lead. They put it out of reach by scoring four in the sixth as they held on for the win. For New Brunswick it was their third Canadian senior menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s championship after wins in 1967 and 1994. Sullivan summed up the experience after the final game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The experience of playing in a National Championship was amazing.  Playing in the final game with a chance to represent your country in the world championships was a dream come true.  Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too bad that we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t catch the breaks that we had in the semi-final and

tie-breaker games.â&#x20AC;? Sullivan was also honoured by being named to the second all-star team as lead based on his throwing per cent during the round robin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our

team: Howard Rajala, Rich Moffatt, Doug Johnston and myself played really well this past week and we are very proud of our accomplishments.â&#x20AC;?

Arnie Hakvoort is Farmer of the Year Nelson Zandbergen Record Staff — AVONMORE Hanging on and even thriving for decades in the otherwise challenging hog industry earned Arnie special Hakvoort recognition last week as Stormont County’s Farmer of the Year for 2012. Born to Dutch immigrants in Almonte, Hakvoort founded Hog Haven Inc. on Goldfield Road outside Finch in 1981, an operation that has spun off into two — soon to be three — separate farms as the next generation follows in their parents’ footsteps. Contacted after the honour bestowed on him at

the annual March 22 Celebration of Stormont Agriculture evening, the honouree said he viewed the recognition very much as one for his entire family, including his wife, Marion, secretary-treasurer of the business. “Absolutely, if it wasn’t for my family, I wouldn’t be here,” said Hakvoort, also accompanied that evening by son Devon, 28 — now the owner operator of the 225-sow farrow-to-finish operation at the original Goldfield Road farm — and daughter Rebecca, 31, and husband, Lee her Schwerdtfeger, 33, who run the Hakvoorts’ Kittle Road hog farm purchased from

Award of Merit for McMaze AVONMORE — McMaze of St. Andrews West was honoured by the Stormont Agricultural Society at the recent Celebration of Agriculture evening held Fri., March 22 with an Award of Merit. McMaze is a family owned and operated fun farm established in the summer of 2001 by Sandy McDonald, eldest son of Stephen and Valerie McDonald. McMaze has continually grown with many new additions and services guaranteed to entertain the whole family. New improved expansions have included “The Haze Maze”, “The Door Maze”, “Haunted Barn”, and “Horse Drawn Wagon/Sleigh Rides” just to name a few. Their customers have helped them achieve many accomplishments such as winning the South Stormont Chamber of Commerce & Women Entrepreneur-Entrepreneurs of the Year Award in 2003 and 2005 and the Premier’s Award for Agricultural Innovation in 2008. McMaze prides itself with

according to Hakvoort, who lives in Berwick with his wife and retains an 1,800acre cropping and custom harvesting operation. This land base is collaboratively cropped by himself and his hog-farming children, he acknowledged,

adding that family members “certainly” help each other out in other ways when needed on their respective farm sites. And it all stems back to that original piggery established 32 years ago with 100 sows (farrow to

recently was awarded the Queen’s Jubilee medal for air cadets. Anthony is working with North Stormont Township and Keshia is a day-care worker. McMaze started out with a 3.5 acre corn maze in the shape of four trees, each in a different season, that challenged navigational skills and the mind by having patrons answer questions to get to the next station, and has grown into a favourite attraction no matter what the season.

Now in its 13th year, McMaze is a year round business with such activities as Farm Adventure Day Camps, five mazes, Old McDonald’s Playground, hosting birthday parties, family reunions, horse drawn sleigh rides, Easter egg hunts, a haunted season and much more. In reaction to the award, the McDonalds said: “We were very surprised at winning this award. We would like to thank everyone who thought we were deserving of the great award.”

finish) and 450 acres. “When I started, there were 69 pork producers in Stormont County,” he said, marvelling at Hog Haven’s status as the sole remaining example. Upgrades were done over the years but on October 16, 2011, a devastating fire levelled the facilities, also destroying the animals inside. Devon had taken over ownership in the spring of 2010, but the decision to rebuild was made quickly, and the replacement barn — similar to the old one in size at 26,500 square feet — was unveiled the following June. Both Arnie and Marion Hakvoort said they were “completely shocked” when his name was announced as Farmer of the Year at the North Stormont Place shindig. In a fortuitous turn of events, Marion happened to be in attendance, having made recent progress against the migraine headaches that have prevented her from going to the annual celebration in recent years. Now grandparents to a five-month-old grandson, the couple were at one time Ontario Young Farmers Winners and Runners-up at the national level. An active director in the Nation Valley Pork Board, Hakvoort has also served on the Bank of Montreal Ag committee.

Valerie and Stephen McDonald of McMaze were honoured with the Award of Merit from the Stormont Federation of Agriculture. contributions to many community groups and organizations and annually employs over 50 people per year. Stephen and Valerie continue to see this family adventure grow into a family business and have recently celebrated their 29th anniversary. Valerie also works at the Upper Canada District

School Board as an educational assistant and is also Stormont’s dairy educator. Stephen continues to work part-time as a heavy equipment operator. As for the other members of the McDonald family who were instrumental in making this attraction such a success, Sandy is now teaching at a local high school and
